Publisher's Summary

High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown. But where the perilous journey inward end - in the cold, shrouded heart of a breathtaking necropolis - something else is waiting for Sam Conklin and his exploratory party. A thing created by Man, yet not humanly possible. Something wondrous . . . something terrifying.

Fast Paced Thriller

Fast paced; action is continuous. There are essentially two main characters; when the action relative to one of the characters lessens, the author "switches" to the other character so that things are always at a fever pitch. Although this may seem confusing, the author has defined the relationship between the two such that the switching between characters develops the overall plot without being contrived. Interest remains peaked as the two lead characters work towards a single resolution of the story. The only negative about the book is that the relationship between the male lead characters and their respective female love interests is trite and predictable.
